The girl I left behind me (medley) recorded on an Edison black wax cylinder circa 1904.
"Although probably an old Irish tune, "The Girl I Left Behind Me" became a popular British marching song under the title "Brighton Camp." In the years before the American revolution, it was often played when a British naval vessel set sail or an army unit left for service abroad. "The Girl I Left Behind Me" was adopted by the Americans and has become a traditional army song especially associated with the Seventh Infantry. It was also a favorite with the troops at Fort Snelling in the 19th century. Even today it is played at the United States Military Academy at West Point as part of the medley for the cadet's final formation for graduation."
Excerpt from: Old Fort Snelling Instruction Book for Fife, p. 35.

Subject: Great song, wimpy title.
This is a song you've heard before, but probably never heard the title of. You would think such a strong military-type song would have a much stronger title. But no, The Girl I left behind me is the title, and it's well performed here. Like the drum beats in this one.
